UH Central Plant Monthly Tours

The primary mission of the Plant Operations group is to serve the needs of faculty, students, and staff by maintaining and improving the physical environment and facilities of the University of Houston. Being an educational institution we also believe in sharing the knowledge of our operations with our students and staff.

Plant Operations is pleased to announce three tours of several Utility Services areas. These tours will be offered on the first Wednesday of every month at 10:30AM and will be lead by a Plant Operationsí staff member. Every month we will alternate between one of the following tours: (1) Central Plant, (2) Underground tunnels, (3) Cougar Sub-station.

TOUR-2: UNDERGROUND TUNNELS AND HIGH VOLTAGE VAULT

There are about 3 miles of underground tunnels at University of Houston. Chilled water, steam, electrical feeders run through these tunnels.

Take a short walk with us to see a portion of these underground tunnels from Science and Research Building 2 (SR2) to University Center-Satellite. During this tour you will see the utilities underground, sub-marine doors installed in tunnels, and the high voltage electrical vault with automatic transfer switches.



REGISTER FOR A TOUR
The tour of the Underground Tunnels and High Voltage Vault is scheduled for Wednesday, March 3, 2010 @ 10:30am.

Please contact Sameer Kapileshwari or Jeff Brown  in Plant Operations to sign up for these tours, or to obtain additional information. The length of the tours will be roughly 25 to 30 minutes. For your safety and security, sandals, open-toed shoes, and/or cameras arenít allowed.
